I'm kicking around adding a front rack to my flat black GTS. Anyone familiar with a front rack that is blacked out to match this scooter?

Thanks Carl!, Scooterwest's rack looks nice, and I found one made by FA Italia-

...found this one on eBay, about $150 with shipping...anyone have pics of either one of these blacked out racks mounted on a flat black GTS?

Really been going back and forth on this recently...I like the clean lines of the GTS w/o any racks, but having a rack gives the scooter so much more utility

A GTS with a rack doesn't look right a flat black GTS with a rack just looks wrong. Now a GTV NEEDS a rack along with as much chrome as possible!

~~~no decisions yet, I was hoping what with all of the talent on this forum (some guy here told me he can write the Lord's prayer on the head of a pin=:-) I would be drooling over all of the pictures others sent, to help me make a decision...as of yet, no luck, so all of my cargo has to fit on the bag hook, or under the seat, and if it can't fit, I don't bring it home. Help me!
LOL

Hey!, thanks for asking, and you have one smart looking GTV, what with all that blindingly bright chrome. Did I mention I like chrome?

Here's an LML Star I had about 10 years ago, wit some chrome on her-

~~~Thanks Tom!, I will be painting my Sprint Veloce soon and am thinking strongly of using a similar, if not the same green

FWIW, just spent the last half hour, looking for a pic I found the other day, of an Ochre colored Sprint, with a white stripe on the side panel, same color as the latter day Lambrettas. I had one some years back

Okay, here it is-

but the Vespa Sprint Ochre pic, had more orange in it. I'll keep looking for it

Not sure what brand but it is very handy.

I have since replaced my Top Box with a real Vespa Box. I love the lights but it is really not very strong, Vespa could have done a much better job.

Shakin Jake,

You need to send a PM to "Rover Eric". He's an old school Modern Vespa member, vintage scooter expert (literally), with a particular interest in vintage paint codes.

For a few years, he wasn't posting much on MV, but he has posted again as of June 2016. He's also a member of the Rovers Scooter Club, so with that info, I'm confident he can be reached if you put in a little leg work.

Here's a specific thread of his that came to mind when you mentioned an Ochre paint color for your Sprint V.

(Don't ask how/why I remembered this...my brain is weird)

Some vespa paint code action...

Yes OEM as OEM. Get in touch with Max at SW and I pretty sure they will set you up with a custom job.
